Your Creation Station is proud to announce the new book, Images of America Middletown, by local author, photographer and Middletown High School Alumni, Shauna McVey, is now available at our studio! Shauna partnered with the Middletown Historical Society to put together a beautiful pictorial history of Middletown, Delaware. Each black and white image is accompanied by an account of the subject’s historical significance.
Middletown, Delaware, named because it was halfway between Appoquinimink Creek and the Bohemia River, dates back to the early 1600’s and has a rich Agricultural and commercial history. In creating the book, Images of America Middletown, Shauna worked closely with the Middletown Historical Society to put together this collection of images detailing the Middletown’s early history. Familiar structures, roads, buildings that still exist today, are among the pictures and descriptions found in its pages. There are also accounts of the people and events that shaped Middletown right through the modern era.
Shauna McVey grew up just north of the town limits, attended Middletown High School and has frequented Your Creation Station from the time we first opened. She worked for the Middletown Transcript as a reporter and managing editor and is also an avid photographer and artist. We are proud to be able to make her book available to our customers and we know you will enjoy having this piece of our town’s history in your library as much as we do. The book is published by Arcadia Publishing and is made in the USA.
